Flying Circus
Through Thick and Thin

Four flying friends lead us on thrilling aerial adventures in this feel-good book packed with aviation information and historical references.

The planes find themselves in a remote base high in the mountains where one mistake can be fatal. They meet Nighthawk, a lovable stealth plane, but a rash impulse from Tom, the F-14, endangers the team. Does he have what it takes to save the day? How will the team tackle an illegal mine producing lethal radiation?

The Spitfire takes responsibility for the commemoration of the Battle of Waterloo. But can he convince the others of the importance of history? He is the ultimate squadron leader, cool and calm, as things around him begin to go awry in this hilarious tale of mistaken identities.


The planes pride themselves on their wings but when a forest fire breaks out, they find their need for a runway is a drawback. Can they put pride aside and accept help from a highly capable helicopter, a Chinook, who doesn’t need a runway?


These three stories of courage, recovering from mistakes, and valuing the unique qualities individuals bring to a team, provide inspiration for young readers to take courage and learn from every experience life presents.
